I look forward to more flashbacks, seeing our vampires Bishop and Aidan in other times and other "lives". I do get distracted studying their time-appropriate hairstyles and clothes, but it's fun.
This show made me like Thirteen, finally. I like that they showed both her strengths and weaknesses. I don't agree with the guy who said she should have apologized for telling House she understood why Cuddy dumped him. He never would have; why should she? And she had a point. He heard her crying and didn't try to comfort her, she shared pain and he said nothing. I do love that he doesn't automatically divert with wisecracks, anymore. Now we see his feelings on his face. Baby steps.
PS I'm tired of hearing from the malcontents who keep posting that the show should end. If you don't want to see it; don't watch it. Go post about a show you care about.
I really think Bishop had more stories in him. Of course a vampire Hitler can't be allowed to live, but he at least deserved a moment of redeeming humanity before he died. I didn't like him, but I'll miss him, if that makes any sense.
The female upper-echelon could be interesting as long as she is more human than Hegeman. The old ones are hardly human at all, and that doesn't make good drama.
No one else is saying so, but I was very grateful the three had a nice few moments joking about wallpaper and just being friends. That should be required in each episode, to keep it from getting too grim.
I hope Josh's sister comes back, but that they DON'T do the silly story about his father they did in the BBC version. That was kind of pointless. Josh's sister is gutsy, though, and a good addition to their little clan. Now I'll try to catch up on the BBC show, if it's available online somewhere. I saw the last four or five shows and would like to see more.
I like the girls. They give us a little breather. The guys might otherwise get repetitive (as they are, a bit) and boring. Amy as girl-Sheldon keeps the nerd theme going, and even Bernadette adds a needed perspective: nerds deserve love, too. I just wish we saw more of the awesome Leslie Winkle.
And didn't ANYONE wonder what happened to that poor pregnant woman? I wanted to see someone rescue her!
Carissa, you don't seem to get that "the Dutch" are very old and powerful and the offshoot of an older, even more powerful bunch back in Europe. Bishop has started a war like a Mafia don - it's going to get very nasty. And you must not have been paying attention; Bishop's plan to rule humans has been discussed in past episodes.
I liked seeing the exorcism sequence, but Sally looks seriously damaged. It will be interesting to see how she get "healed" of that assault.
And, really, Josh's dream was too obvious since they did it before very recently. I knew as soon as I saw the baby gifts that he was about to see a nightmare were-baby. I thought they should have made it howl, though! X)
I've watched some of the BBC version and am trying not to get the stories confused. I think the writing is improved here, as if they had time to think better of their choices. There, the vampire boy was sent off to live with his mom. That's just stupid; how could that possibly work out? I also don't get why ghosts in the UK apparently can touch and interact as if they were alive. But maybe I missed something. I need to see more of them, if I can.
I had the exact same thoughts: great 50's hair and jackets - wow, they've switched roles. I want to see Aidan and Bishop in different periods over the past 200 years. I also want to see an uprising of younger vampires to rid themselves of Elder rule! Don't you think there will be an interesting outcome of Josh getting his hands on the "Professor's" notebooks? A werewolf cure!
Broadwayfan: get over yourself. I'm enjoying SyFy's Being Human tremendously and am spreading the word on how good it is. Tonight's show was wild!
I was not as impressed as I might have been because the writers' thought processes seemed transparent. At the opening, with the bull rider celebrating while still in danger and then catching the horns, I thought: there's the parallel with House. Guys tend to think they've won a prize when a woman accepts them and are shocked to find they're not "home free". And I was first confused, then realized all House's wanton "therapy" was a reversal. In the past we've seen him wallow in drunken misery. Now he's wallowing in self-indulgence instead. That beatific smile under water seemed significant - like a baptism? Maybe we're going to find that his now-healthier, more easily healed psyche is going to be free of Cuddy - or be worthy of her.
No offense, Carissa, but you obviously have a crush on Josh and is skews your perspective. He's a bit nerdy and they underline that with the MIT background. I like him, he's a sweet guy, but he gets whiny. I don't see that Nora makes any sense for him at all. She's got way too much edge for sensitive Josh. The point of their sex scene was probably just a play on the phrase "doggy style." Does no condom = wolf pup? BTW there are kids out there (and I'm not a parent) who shouldn't be exposed to some scenes of this show. I enjoy it, but this is a show for mature audiences. Regarding Sally, I don't understand why they are writing her as so immature. Her self-centered behavior is very adolescent and I wonder if they want teens to relate to her. As for Bridget, I tend to believe her. But the writers could be misdirecting us since lonely Aiden wants to believe her. I won't be surprised if she does betray him. I've only seen a little of BBC Being Human, but I would love to know how the two versions are different.
